Important Update to Richard Garriott’s Offer of Ultima (and Shroud of the Avatar) Completion Certificates

Original article: http://ultimacodex.com/2015/03/richard-garriott-will-issue-ultima-and-shroud-of-the-avatar-completion-certificates/

Since not every Ultima game had a completion certificate, Richard Garriott — after being asked by Sergorn Dragon — has clarified the format that the new certificates he is offering to send out will take. Basically, for those games that had certificates, a copy of the original certificate design will be used. For those games that didn’t have a certificate, a congratulatory note will be sent out instead…unless some enterprising fans want to create completion certificates for the games that don’t already have one.

If any of you do make the effort to create a completion certificate, my suggestion would be to upload it somewhere — your own website, or to a service like imgur if you don’t have one — and then drop a link to it here; I can then bring it to Richard Garriott’s attention. Unless, of course, you’re on Twitter; then you can engage with him directly.

    Are there any enterprising fans want to create completion certificates for the Ultima games that don’t already have one?

    Just make sure it’s an svg file or otherwise super high-res. Nothing worse than unintentional pixel art.

      I’ve got Illustrator CS 4, but usually only do some .ai layout on occasion. Is .svg a vector standard? If raster, what’s a normal dpi for production print, 300?

        SVG is vector, yes.

        For raster, 300 or 600 DPI should suffice, and I’d suggest erring on the high side. Easier to compress than to expand.

        Here’s some info on svg:

        Illustrator probably supports it, but if you’d like a free open source alternative Inkscape is pretty good:

        I actually used Inkscape to create the Sylph logo 3D model. In Inkscape I created splines over a background image, then imported the svg into Blender to extrude, bevel and fine-tune it. I’m a complete noob at it, but it looks pretty powerful.
